Making My Boys Smile in Photoshop πŸ™‚

Wanna hear the story of how I made my boys smile in Photoshop? This last Mother’s Day my wife wanted nothing more than a picture of all of us together on Mother’s Day.Β 

We don’t get dressed up much, in fact with my wife being a stay at home superheroine and me working in the dungeon, we find ourselves in pajamas (my wife would clarify that they are house clothes) more often than not.Β  We made a very deliberate attempt at church to get a shot of us all dressed up (well, outside clothes for all intents and purposes).Β  Β 

My boys, they didn’t provide us with a smile, so I made them smile in Photoshop.Β  They may learn their lesson in the future πŸ™‚

In today’s tutorial,Β  I will show you how to get creative with your anti-smiling children and make them learn to enjoy the snap-happy Mom moments all at the same time!Β  If this doesn’t put a smile on your face today, I don’t know what will.Β  I needed to lighten things up after last week’s post πŸ™‚
